At Mobile World Congress 2023, Ooredoo has extended its partnership with Huawei to implement the vendor’s 5G solutions in Iraq, Kuwait, Oman and Tunisia.
The partnership builds on a five-year strategic agreement signed by the parties in 2021. Huawei noted that the updated partnership would see it deploy new networks for Ooredoo in Kuwait, Oman and Iraq, as well as provide wireless equipment services in Tunisia.
Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdulla Al Thani, Deputy Group CEO at Ooredoo said: “Seeking, establishing and developing partnerships such as that we enjoy with Huawei enables us to quickly and efficiently respond to the ever-growing digital requirements of our industry and markets. This new agreement reflects our committed pursuit of advanced technologies and innovative solutions, in order to enable us to offer our customers an upgraded, ever-improving digital experience.”
Huawei and Ooredoo have a longstanding relationship, with the vendor’s technology underpinning Ooredoo’s pioneering launch of a commercial 5G network in 2018.
